About this deal

This is a weird and crazy book that engages young readers in a fun, creative way, and that introduces them to a non-fiction scientific topic with interest that they would otherwise likely never explore. The fun, colorful illustrations work together with the information presented in a way that's straightforward and easy to understand. They carpet the forest floor, and hidden fungi decompose matter, feed plants, and affect how animals function.

I didn't get this one to read to the babies, I got it for myself, but it is a fascinating and detailed intro to mushrooms for older kiddos or even adults. I love that the book takes a topic that would not usually interest students much and turns it into something of curiosity and creativity as they learn through the book. It includes gross-out stories of fungal infections that kids will love, incredible facts about "bananageddon", crop disease, epidemics, and zombified ants! Can it be possible that the forest’s five brave heroes might gather a magical potion and thereafter strike down Fungellus?Therefore, Bookwagon recommends Super Magic Happy Forest and the Humongous Forest highly to our newer chapter book readers. This particular title is especially noteworthy because mushrooms, fungi, and molds of various kinds are just that- widely varied, and yet ubiquitous. Encounter creatures of the deep and marvel at the mind-boggling size of the humongous fungus - the biggest organism in the world.

You know those mushroom rings 🍄🍄🍄 in folklore that say they’re formed by fairies dancing in a circle? Back in the Magic Forest, the heroes embark on a plan to collect ingredients for an antidote to Rainbow Dragon’s malaise, in the hope that she will then be able to defeat Fungellus. Following on from the gorgeous ‘Under Your Feet’, and touching on similar topics of conservation and the secret processes within ecosystems, this book of fabulous fungi will intrigue and amaze young readers.you re bound to find countless facts and new information that will make you want to text or talk to someone about it! Fungus" is irregular in color and shape, making it mysterious and scary, but cheese and yogurt are actually fermented foods that provide effective nutrition for the body. Glossary and index, no sources (except for photo credits) but DK thanks experts for their contributions at the end. Would probably work for kids who love to read those "1001 amazing facts about animals" books or whatever, but I had to pick one or two facts to try to remember and let the others go. Inside the pages of this children's science and nature book, you'll discover exactly what fungi are and more!

That's why we create books for everyone that explore ideas and nurture curiosity about the world we live in.

Every single page is crammed full of amazing facts and information as well as beautiful illustrations. Humongous Fungus will intrigue and amaze young readers, and open their eyes to the fungi thriving all around them. Every hundred years the Super Happy Magic Forest celebrates its origin, when the Rainbow Dragon shot fire and life upon barren land to create a place of wonder, beatify and happiness. It was a little too scattered for me; humongous fungus is only one small section of the book, despite the title.
